Met a lot of fighters, favorite one has got to be Roy Nelson, really awsome guy. 

3 times, got him to autograph a dollar bill the first time, took a picture the second, got him to sign that picture the third.

But mark my words, the next fan expo that I go to and the ones after , I will ALWAYS BUY THE VIP FAN EXPO ticket..It is SOOO WORTH it! You get in an HOUR earlier then all of the other people..So, that'll mean I'll get there an hour earlier to wait in line for the "RUSH"!

Met GSP on 1/1/10, stole a thing from the hotel for him to sign (I thought you had to bring your own pen+thing to get signed), watched him toss it over his shoulder and give me a poster.
